Elvis Presley did yoga?

Imagine Elvis Presley doing sun salutation! Believe it or not, this rock'n roll star was a meditating vegetarian and also a yoga practitioner. He reportedly said that:  "I know some of the things I think are kind of far out… and I don’t meet a lot of people that I can relate to, and those that I do meet need to know more about their spiritual selves.”

He was also a frequent visitor of Yogananda's Lake Shrine retreat located on in California. This old school video is hilarious. The way it has been shot, and just everything about it. It shows Elvis Presley as a poor yoga practitioner while singing his song: "Yoga is as Yoga does"


  1. Yoga and music are two different things. Elvis impersonators are somewhat in requiring in different theme parties. They are called as rock and roll star. Mostly younger generation likes them. They are paid smartly. His talent electrifies that they are the best. Elvis on tour Elvis impersonators UK was simply amazing.

  2. Superb blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any message boards
    that cover the same topics discussed here? I'd really love
    to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!
